Money for human help
Bainbridge Islands Health, Housing and Human Services Council is seeking funding proposals for 2006 from nonprofit agencies providing health, housing and human services to island residents.
In 2005, $270,100 was allocated from the City of Bainbridge Island for such services. Currently, nine agencies are receiving from $5,000 to $98,700 each, to provide youth services, daycare, volunteer and transportation services, support to families in crisis, counseling, and financial assistance.
HHHS, a nonprofit organization, reviews applications and makes funding recommendations to the city for service contracts to be included in the Citys 2006 budget.
Applications for funding will be available at City Hall in the Mayors office, and are due by 4 p.m. May 27 at City Hall.
For more information on eligibility for funding, contact Jan Lambert, HHHS executive director at 842-9335.
